Review: Scot of My Dreams


In Janice Maynard’s sweet and sexy new series, three childhood friends with a shared passion for the Outlander novels and TV show decide to travel to Scotland looking for adventure-and their very own Highland heroes…It’s a dream come true for schoolteacher Hayley Smith. No homework to grade, no students to corral, no social media, Internet or cell phone…just a month amid the heather and rolling hills around Inverness. A brawny alpha male in a kilt is probably too much to ask for. But Hayley is in heaven ambling around Loch Ness, gazing and then…falling into the icy water, before being rescued by a strong, chivalrous local hero…

Retired soccer star Angus Munro, aka Angus the Angler, is a little insulted and a whole lot intrigued when Hayley doesn’t recognize him. How long has it been since anyone saw beyond his wealth and fame? And how long before the macho athlete and his modern-day American damsel in distress act on an attraction that could make even the misty Scottish moors sizzle with heat? Long enough, maybe, for both to figure out if this is an affair to remember…or the start of something everlasting…

Rating: 5-stars


Scot of My Dreams by Janice Maynard is a magical journey readers won’t forget. I was instantly dragged into Hayley’s travel. She is forced onto a trip most would dream about taking. Her friends forced her. They all love Outlander series which inspired their trip to Scotland. One of the three friends is wealthy and paid for their travel. The other two only had to bring enough to eat and for their own hotel room. I enjoyed the women’s banter as they all fussed on explorations and embracing for a  brewing romance. All of them except for Hayley. She was the a tough critic against the fact that they each would find a Scot. One that would sweep them off their feet. But to meet this man of their dreams they need to go traveling on separate paths. I laughed along as the story unfolded. Behold…the impossible can become possible. This tale was beautifully told. Engaging from beginning to end. A romance does come to brew within the pages. It’s sweet and believable. Irresistibly good. A sexy Scotsman and an epic castle will surely keep readers hooked. Scot of My Dreams is fast-paced, exciting, and unforgettable. I finished reading it within an hour. I simply could not stop reading this novel. I loved it. Overall, I highly recommend Janice Maynard’s book to readers everywhere.
